OK, so I understand how a recall should be made when defective products are discovered.

But tell me this: IF you had one of these food processors and you made something with it and the blade broke apart, don't you think you'd notice? And would you really feed your friends and/or family the food anyway?

OK, so maybe some people don't notice stuff like that.

From what I read, Beth, it seems some of the pieces are really really small.  If you were really buzzing something up, like pesto, for instance, you might not even look at it very closely.  Or you grate something like garlic and then throw in some bigger stuff on top to just pulse, like large pieces of onion or something.  Plus, my Cuisinart is such a trusted part of my kitchen that I might even place more trust in it than I should.  

When Brian got me mine (it was a Christmas present many years ago), Cuisinart was celebrating an anniversary and it came with a 10-inch Cuisinart skillet, which still looks brand new, I might add.  There's etching touting the anniversary on the skillet handle along with the date.  That way I know (or can check when I forget) the year I got my food processor (1980)!  Amazing that an appliance is still working perfectly 36 years later.  Recently, I'd toyed with the idea of getting a new one, as I was mesmerized by the new model with the dicing attachment Embarassed but they've got a ways to go per the reviews by buyers that I read prior to perfecting it.  I swear, I have to laugh as no matter how old I get and how much less I do in the kitchen now compared to before my back problems, I still am a sucker for anything having to do with cooking or the kitchen.
